Hamilton under late September heat warning

Hamilton under late September heat warning”

Friday's high of close to 30 C beat a decades old record for September 22, as the hot and humid weather felt more like July than the first day of fall.

Torontonians looking to find some relief from the heat can head to any one of the City of Toronto's splash pads which will be open this weekend.

Temperatures are expected to increase with consistently sunny skies September 24 and September 24, Environment Canada said. Maximum humidex values are forecast to approach 40 C on both Saturday and Sunday.

As for the warm weather warning, the risks are greater for young children, pregnant women, older adults, people with chronic illnesses and people working or exercising outdoors.

Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for Waterloo Region and much of Southern Ontario, just as the official start of Fall was ushered in this afternoon.

In its heat warning, Environment Canada says that residents should do their best to reduce their heat risk by completing outdoor activities during the coolest part of the day and seeking shelter from the sun.

The last day when the temperature topped 30 C was more than a month ago on August 21.
